Why you should do this walk…

A 3.5 mile (6km) circular walk (can be shortened to 2.2 miles) around the countryside near Terrington in North Yorkshire. The route follows a beautiful high ridge through woodland and then with superb panoramic views. The short version of the route returns along the same ridge, while the full version of the route performs a loop down into the valley bottom. This walk is part of the Howardian Hills Easy Countryside Trails collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and the Howardian Hills AONB Partnership, with the aim of providing countryside access for all in the Howardian Hills.

Dog friendly?…

The short version of the route (2.2 miles there and back) follows a compacted stone vehicle track which is generally well-made with just the odd pot hole and some shallow surface mud. The track has only gentle slopes for the most part (estimated maximum gradient of 1:20 or 5%) with one 10 metre stretch that has a moderate slope (estimated gradient of 1:12 or 8%). There are no stiles, gates or steps on this version of the walk and it should be suitable for rugged pushchairs and rugged disability buggies for most of the year. Breakfree Surface and Slope Rating B1 (for majority of track) and B3 (for a 10 metre stretch). Allow 1 hour.

The full version of the route (3.5 miles circular) follows a mixture of stone and unmade vehicle tracks, parts of which are deeply rutted. There are several long and steep slopes (maximum estimated gradient of 1:6 or 16%). You will need to negotiate two vehicle gates. You will cross one grass pasture which may be holding sheep so take particular care with dogs. Breakfree Surface and Slope Rating D5. Allow 1.5 hours.
